Return visit - not at all disappointing!

I enjoyed this restaurant 2 years ago, but didn't have a chance to make it back last year. I made sure to visit early in my trip this year... and it didn't disappoint. The Watermelon Margarita is still delicious, as are the nachos that I ordered for my meal. The grouper sandwich my SO had was... read more

Thir achos are amazing but big enough to share. I wish that the waitress would of informed us of that ahead of time... came here for a frozen cocktail after walking on the beach. Amazing. Nice ambianc . In the evenings with live music. One of my favorite places.

A classic island restaurant in a bohemian island village. Within walking distance to almost everything. The live band is fun and gets everyone singing.

Key Lime just gets it done. We always dine here when we're here in Captiva. Great menu, fair prices and friendly staff. Whether you come early or late quality is excellent. The area has shops, more restaurants and a grocery store if you need it. Parking is difficult sometimes.......

One of the best meals we had in Florida. The service was great (we had a lot of bad service at other restaurants and were beginning to wonder about Florida...), the food was great, and the ambiance was perfect for the location. Nothing fancy, just good eating. Key lime pie is a must!

I was in Captiva one afternoon while vacationing in Sanibel and decided to stop in at the Keylime Bistro for a piece of key lime pie. I wasn't too impressed with the restaurant, and maybe not even the service, but the key lime pie was excellent!!

I could not eat my dish. The grouper was old and extremely fishy. I eat grouper frequently and that grouper was bad. The waitress was not overly helpful. We ate outside because the smell and condition of inside was not pleasant. We went because it was recommended by our waitress the night before and because they had live music which... More
